[applause] to these conservative victories we have when harry met shelly playing in nevada. joe the senator in alaska, delaware is about to send conservative to the united states senate as well. [applause] as we say, on highway 40 where i grew up, who'd have thunk it? even republicans in congress have gotten back to fiscal discipline and conservative values. let's be honest, four years ago republicans in congress did not just lose their majority. they lost breakaway. -- they lost their way. when i opposed the wall street bailout, i told my colleagues the american people would eventually go with the professionals if we kept acting like liberals. sadly, they did. the truth is our party in congress walk away from the principles that minted our national governing majority. if the american people walked away from that. house republicans, have they learned their lesson? people ask me that. after a year that saw every sing
